October 31, 2001|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

A 30-year-old man wanted on attempted murder charges in a shooting this month in South Baltimore was arrested Monday evening after a car and foot chase by city police.

Acting on a tip, detectives with the Warrant Apprehension Task Force were watching for David A. Pointer in the 1300 block of E. 35th St. about 6 p.m., police said yesterday.

Pointer drove up in a black Lexus and stepped out, but jumped back in as the detectives tried to arrest him, police said. He drove several blocks, leapt out of the car and was arrested in the 600 block of E. 36th St.

Pointer, of the 3900 block of Kimble Road, is charged with attempted murder in the Oct. 15 shooting of 30-year-old Teon Gray on Warner Street, police said.
